a gift

My cousin is about to give birth to her second child. I didn't get to buy anything for her first born because at the time I was not working and didn't have any means of getting anything substantial. Now that I can afford to get her or her coming baby a little something though I will make sure that whatever I will get will be something important enough they will have use for it for a long time. Like giving them a Cryo-Cell gift certificate so her and her husband have the choice to save their child's cord blood. Cord blood banking may one day be able to save a life. It is indeed a gift that should last a lifetime since the stem cells collected from cord blood can be used to treat life threatening diseases.

A gift certificate sounds more and more appealing to me. And the fact that it is affordable makes it even a better choice. If I only knew about cord blood banking and I had the money when I gave birth I would have done it for my son too. Perhaps next time. We still plan on having another baby maybe in a year or two. I hope by that time Cryo-Cell will still have their current offers so I can avail of it. It doesn't hurt to hope you know, lol.
